Who do you want to become like? Of course, for the Christian, we want to become like Jesus. But God has given us individuals in our lives that we respect and admire. We can learn from them. Who is your hero? Is it a Hollywood actor? A family member? A priest or a pastor? Someone in our nation’s history? A married couple? Someone in your church?


I have prayed and asked to God to help me become like Montiel McCauley. I grew up with this sweet woman as an older lady in my church. I loved her kindness and sweet smile. When I got older, I got to know her better. She had a prayer book filled with the names of people she prayed for. She read her Bible every morning. She told everyone she met about Jesus. I would like to become like Montiel.


Who would you like to become like? Who is the first person that comes to mind? Is it Jesus? Is it a person in your family, your church, your friends, a Hollywood actor, a married couple?

Be Imitators of God

Therefore, be imitators of God, as beloved children and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. Ephesians 5:1-2

Dear Father,

Help me to be like Jesus first, and Montiel second. Help me to love people the way she loved people. Help me to pray for people. Help me to share my faith with those who need Jesus. In Jesus name I pray, amen

I belong to a group of writers called Five Minute Friday. Every Friday we are given a one word prompt and five minutes to write about that topic. I love to read other people’s blogs- there is so much God given talent. Terri day’s word was the word become.

I do not endorse any of the ads you may see on my blog. I refuse to pay WordPress to be ad free, so they add ads to my blog. I apologize for this.




  1. Who I have wanted to become has changed over the years as God weaved different ones in and through my life. And always, it was because they were women who pointed me to Jesus, who was always wanting to make me more like Him. Blessings!

  2. I have really got to say
    in the int’rest of veracity,
    that at the end of every day
    I truly want to be like me.
    I have got to figure God
    when making me had in His mind
    a purpose, maybe pretty odd,
    for forming me one of a kind
    who dances down the produce aisle
    while Walmart shoppers roll their eyes,
    and sings there in a Latin style
    to the very great surprise
    of both the young and very old
    who’re happy that God broke the mold.

  3. Hi!

    I agree with Joanne’s comment above!
    Who I wanted to become has changed drastically as I’ve gotten older ( and hopefully wiser!)
    Now I strive to be more like Jesus. It’s not easy, but following Jesus gives me peace like no other.

  4. This is beautiful, Terri. There is a lovely elderly lady in our church called Marg, and I pray I age like her – in love with Jesus more every day, loving and attentive towards everyone, not insecure, able to love without offence, but not above people’s pain. She often cries with people and for them, and loses sleep praying for them. She has shown me Jesus’ love in a tangible way. But I love the Scriptural reminder – be imitators of God. Thanks. Your FMF neighbour, visiting from #3 this week.
